Mykhailo Podolyak, adviser to the head of the President’s Office, spoke about this in an interview with Bloomberg. He hopes to continue the mandate to export grain from Ukrainian ports, reports Railway Supply magazine citing Rail.insider.

At the same time, he declined to specify when any results could be expected, calling the talks “difficult”. According to him, Ukraine does not negotiate directly with the Russian Federation, but there are subgroups that include Turkey and the UN. The agreement concluded on July 22 on the partial unblocking of Ukrainian ports for the export of grain is for 120 days.

The profile association UGA predicted a harvest this year at the level of almost 70 million tons. To date, more than 6 million tons of agricultural products have already been exported by the grain corridor.
